    Garrison Brothers:
    Price 40 dollars for 375 Ml.
    Bottle: Cool.
    Nose: As First Poured- Alchohol was the first thing I noticed...
    First sip: a little Burn, and little bitey on first sip, carmel toward the back, and .. lingering notes of wood... Maybe a little smokey..

    After letting it sit in the glass in front of me, the smell of carmel popcorn wafted from a good 20 inches from the glass, making my mouth water...

    Second nose: If i get too close to the glass, the alchohol overpowers the sweeter notes... so I backed off about six inches... now I get the sweet mouth watering essence of sweet buttery corn...

    Second sip: Definately taste the oak barrel in this, but it is nice... the corn comes after... and there is a little burn on the swallow with a finish that reminds me of ambesol. haha...

    Then it loosens up to a nice liqourice... oak notes remain, then that sweet aroma of spring time fresh hay mixed with roasted marshmallows... and my mouth begins to water for another sip...

    This is a young bourbon whiskey, but the Texas Heat and Texas Corn must do something to bring out that wood barrel note... it seems to get more aromatic the longer it sits in front of me. The longer I wait between sips,, the more I want to taste it again.

    Worth the price in my opinion for a neat sipper... It is good... damn good.

    But I cant imagine mixing it in anything...

    As I take another sip, this makes me feel as close to being back on the farm, hauling hay... riding my horse... that smell of fall leaves... hay... the smell of leather... the grain feed I used to feed to the horses... it is all there...

    I grew up, moved away... lived the city life since, but I miss it. This drink takes me right back there...
    Ahhh...

    . . .
    Well, I like Buffalo Trace too... and I was going to compare the two... but this is a moment for loyalty to one whiskey... at least for today...

    I think I will just sit here for an hour, and sip on Garrison Brothers....
    Yall have a good night....

    Salude!

    Well...

    Don't have much to contribute. Don't drink bourbon.

    Drink Jack if I have to.

    Nothing wrong with that... :)

    You prefer a good peaty/smoky Islay?

    wait.. do you mix Glenfiddich with Mcclelland's ?
    I cant find any reference to 'Glen' McClellen...

    I haven't had a drink in 18 years and I have no idea why a line is being drawn under what I write.

    I knew a guy who injected whiskey. Pissed in ten seconds flat, I was fighting with him after the eleventh, a lit cigarette got swallowed by the injector. Bobby Marks you should be dead.

    None of it is yummy I think, makes the average being recoil. Effect is desire.

    I like chocolate milk. Bet he would have taken a glass of that. Just can't hang the next day.

    We have Euro fizz and strong ciders. I dislike the taste of anything alcoholic . Ever had a vodka melon for Christmas. Take the top of a honey dew and scoop out the middle, fill with vodka,put the top back on and wrap in cling film. Put in the fridge for two days. Any spirit would work but whiskey may be too much.
